The TASCAM DR-40X recorder offers pro-level four-track recording capabilities in a compact handheld format. Itâ€™s a smart choice for DSLR filmmakers, musicians, sound designers, podcasters, and other creatives that need a simple and high-quality solution for capturing audio. A pair of condenser microphones can be oriented for either A/B or XY stereo recording, with two more XLR/TRS combo inputs for additional mics or sound sources. The TASCAM DR-40X will even serve as a USB audio interface to record directly to your computer. However you use it, expect great sound quality and flexible connectivity from the TASCAM DR-40X handheld recorder.
Want your TASCAM DR-40X to begin recording when it receives an audio signal, without having to get your hands on it? Simply engage Auto Recording mode. Youâ€™ll be able to set a threshold at which point it will begin recording â€” once its microphones or audio inputs sense an audio signal above that threshold, recording will begin.
